Home Learning Thursday 7th January – Y6

Good Morning Y6. We hope you managed to find some time to enjoy the snow as well as doing your work !

The problem with the website yesterday was a bit of a headache, so don’t worry if you didn’t finish all of yesterday’s work. Please use today to finish it off and submit it as there is a bit less to do today . . . .

English

Yesterday was the feast of Epiphany. We are going to find out more about the festival using this comprehension. Don’t forget that you don’t need to answer in full sentences.

We are going to find out about the symbols and colours that represent Epiphany.

Symbols of Epiphany

The colors of Epiphany are usually the colors of Christmas, white and gold, the colors of celebration, newness, and hope that mark the most sacred days of the church year. In traditions that only observe a single day for Epiphany, the colors are often changed after Epiphany to the colors of Ordinary Time, usually green or thematic sanctuary colors, until Transfiguration Sunday, the last Sunday before the beginning of Lent. The colors for Transfiguration Sunday are usually the colors of Holy Days, white and gold.

The traditional liturgical symbols of Epiphany are usually associated with the Magi. The symbols include either three crowns or a single crown, various portrayals of the Magi or Wise Men, three gifts, a five pointed star, or a combination of a star and crown. A more modern symbol of Epiphany is a globe or a stylized portrayal of the world.

Around January 6, the symbol +C+B+M+ with two numbers before and two numbers after (for example, 20+C+B+M+12) is sometimes seen written in chalk above the doorway of Christian homes. The letters are the initials of the traditional names of the Three Magi: Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. These letters also abbreviate the Latin phrase Christus mansionem benedicat, “May Christ bless the house.” The beginning and ending numbers are the year, 2012 in the example above. The crosses represent Christ.

Marking the lintels of doorways is an old European practice that originally had overtones of magic (protection of the house). However, the symbols are now used throughout the world and usually represent a traditional Epiphany prayer and blessing.

Now open the file below. Use it to think through why these symbols are used ? Try to explain in as much detail as you can.

Year 6 Home Learning – Wednesday 6th January

We certainly didn’t expect to be doing this again so soon, but lets start this next series of home learning lessons with a positive approach. We have got lots of exciting things planned.

Reflection

Today is Epiphany. At some point today, you might like to watch this reflection from YMT.

English

We are continuing with our non chronological report topic using the video below…. The video guides you through what to do, but please record your work and research on paper or digitally.

Maths

We are continuing our topic on fractions for two days. Today we are reviewing finding fractions of an amount.

Use the video to recap on how to calculate fractions of an amount, then complete the worksheet below. Answers are provided to help you find out how you have done and hopefully correct any errors.

Art

It is strange when we stay in one place for a long time we don’t see what is around us. This task will hopefully get you to see one part of your house in a different way . . . . Click on the link below to find out more.

Each art task that you do, needs to be kept in a place by you and when we return to school, we will share your work in class and stick it into your art books. There is no need to send this work in by email.

Home learning Monday 30th November

7 days of home learning completed and one one left to go ! Thank-you so much for continuing with your work at home. We know it hasn’t been easy but we have nearly made it !

Today, we are doing some more practical tasks which we would like you to bring into school tomorrow. You don’t need to send in the Maths or Art via email as we would like you to bring the finished pieces into school with some juxtaposition sentences and your repeating pattern poems. If you cant send the video in, don’t worry, we will just ask you to read your poem in class.

Maths

Today we are doing something completely different ! Art in maths or maths in art !

Watch the first video to see what a tessellation is . . . .

This next video goes into more detail. Lets see how we can create our own adventurous tessellations based on a square.

Now your turn, create your own tessellation using translation, reflection or glide reflection and decorate it.

Bring your finished tessellations into school tomorrow.

We would like you to share your recording with us all, so send it to the Y6 Gmail and we will share everything in school tomorrow. If you cant get it recorded, you can read your final piece with us at school.

Can also bring to school tomorrow in examples of juxtaposition sentences and  your  finished repeating pattern poem. 

Art

One of your ideas might already stand out to you as a great setting to bring to life by drawing/painting. Choose one of your ideas and sketch out what it might look like there. Here’s an idea for The forest of premonitions.

Task 1

Before you start drawing, make a list of how you would feel being in that place. What can you include in your picture to reinforce those feelings ? Gnarly trees might show fear. A rainbow might show happiness. You decide.

Task 2

Once you have sketched it, go back to your list of feelings. Now try to link those feelings to some colours. The picture below will help . . .

Task 3

Once you have decided which colours to use, add some colour. It can be paint or pens or pencils, whatever you have in the house. Think carefully about the colours to really reinforce that feeling.

Task 4

Finally we would like you to add a 3D element to your picture.  It can be some strips of paper to show leaves, a 3d flower. You decide.

Bring your finished work into school tomorrow to let us all marvel at your creations.
